Spreading Kindness Campaign

As we wade through these unprecedented times together, it is important to slow down and show appreciation to those around us with acts of kindness. HarbinSTRONG encourages you to take time to spread kindness and look for specific ways to do small things with great love for those around you. Call a friend who might be isolated, pick up groceries for an elderly neighbor, provide lunch for at risk kids – opportunities for kindness abound.

Log into the HarbinSTRONG portal for details.
